    Hey,
    this is my new setup of 90x45x45cm tank. During set up I was not alone this time, but with local aquarists. We had local aquarists skype group meeting at my place.

    From what I can see it looks like it was very well planned especially looking at the table.

    The Aquascaping also looks like a lot of though went into setting it up and in my opinion it looks very promising.

    I would like to see a front photo but looking down on it just a little.

    What do you intend to plant around all those rocks?

    I know I am very fussy and the only two points I can see to improve your tank would be to replace the two small grey river stones with a colour as possible to major stones.

    Does that pathway go behind that medium size rock mid RH side

    I still say its a fantastic tank.

    I think, during the tank will mature these grey stone will find their place atached with moss firstly.. ;)
    ,,Does that pathway go behind that medium size rock mid RH side?"
    It doesnt ;)
    Thank you for your opinion ;)

    I have been trying to work out what the scape represents.

    To me it looks like a dry creek bed in a rocky area after a bush fire and all the new growth has just started.

    Its one of those Aquascapes no matter how many times you look at it you see something you have not seen previously and that is what makes it so interesting.

    I find your scape realy interesting. I don't like how it looks now but i'm sure it is'nt meant to be untill it has grown.
    But i just can't imagine how it will develop because i've never used mosses, ever.

    Will those mosses grow in completely? I mean like a forest like thing?

    Scapeofaqua,
    thank you for your opinion!
    Yeap, mosses are likely to be let to grow until these trees will goal more natural look.

    That tank is moving along slowly but it looks like all as planed or as nature decides what its doing.

    Its starting to develop into a planed natural Aquascape.

    What ever you are doing don't change a thing.

    Is it my eyes or is the tank rather murky (not clear)

    I also notice you have a good collection of Snails.

    If you want to remove them completely get 3-4 young Clown Loaches and don't feed them for at least a week+ and they will clean them all out plus the snail eggs.

    I would leave them in that tank for at least 6 months then sell them as they should be in a very good condition.

    keithgh,
    you can see my windows in the picture, maybe for this it can look murky.. I am using Seachem Purigen, so my water is crystal clear.
    I realy have a few snails, but it is not a problem.

    ;)
